September saw the 13th consecutive month of commercial vehicle registration increases across the EU, according to new figures.

Data from European manufacturers’ association ACEA shows a month-on-month increase of 13.2% across all sectors, totalling 181,436 units.

Light commercial vehicles (LCVs) including vans and pickups saw the strongest growth year-to-date, while the truck and bus and coach segments slightly declined. All major markets expanded with Italy, Spain and the UK recording double-digit growth of 33%, 20.2% and 10.6% respectively.

Commenting on the ACEA figures, an SMMT spokesperson said, “With around half of UK-built commercial vehicles finding homes overseas, it is encouraging to see a European commercial vehicle market very much on the road to recovery. Europe’s CV market broadly reflects that of the UK, which so far this year has seen overall registrations increase 12.6%, demand for vans grow 18.1%, but truck registrations have fallen 20.3%.”
